1 ou have probably concealed your Baby Book from your 

best boy-friend 
Hidden many Books under your pillow and as a small child 
Cherished the Books won in Sunday School 
Shed many a tear (secretly) over the hard words in the Primer 
Laughed and cried over Books your mother read to you 
Had the Diamond Dick and Dime Novel craze 
Wished you had read your Text Books more carefully 
Seen Books in Book Stores that you couldn't afford to buy 
Entertained your Freshman with your Mem. Book 
Criticised Books recommended by other people 
Reread suppressed Books (especially in Boston) 
Completely exhausted the Cook Book for quick or easy dishes 
Thoroughly enjoyed Books read because every one was "doing 

Already hoped the Bank Book next year will be a joy rather 

than a worry 
Long ago taken the Bible, Shakespeare and the Book of 

Etiquette from the Library table. 
What place will our Book hold — that valuable space on the 
Ready Reference Shelf, next to the Encyclopedia (which was 
a gift) as a constant reminder of five, ten, twenty, or even 
thirty years ago?

Fans Juventatis Terpetuae 

More than four hundred years ago, Ponce de Leon, commissioned by his govern- 
ment, Spain, to discover the Fountain of Youth somewhere on the mythical Isle of 
Bimini, on an Easter Sunday (Pascua Florida), found on the "Island" he called 
Florida, not the Fountain of Youth, but perennial flowers by crystal lakes. 

Were Ponce de Leon to come back to earth today, he would find at our College the 
Fountain of Perpetual Youth. Our College today is no older than when founded a 
quarter of a century ago. Each year the same Stream of Youth flows into and through 
its halls, — a rippling stream of buoyant spirits, of sparkling eyes that look into far 
lands, where fountains never fail and youth never grows old. On the banks of this 
stream, grows "the tree of life, and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the 

We, who sit by, as the gladsome stream flows on, can never grow old. Each autumn 
the clear stream brings us a deep draft of the elixir of life, from the Fountain of Youth, 
far up in the enchanted woods, on the mountain side. 

"O ye tidal years that roll over us all — be kind! Leave, oh leave us bright the 
burnished gold of joy, and the rainbow colors of our youth!" 

Class of 192.8, when you have gone forth into the old, cold world, come ye back 
often to Young Alma Mater. Sit by the banks of her Stream of Youth. Drink again 
of her cooling waters, that refresh, that re-create, that awaken memories which 
thrill backward and start an echo in the living past. 

Class of Nineteen-Twenty-Eight, 

Come back, come back! 
Grow young along with me! 
"The best is yet to be." 

Virginia May Britting 

^President of 

Simmons College Student (government 


September 19, 192.7 to February 13, 19x8 

For three and one-half years, 19x8 has followed the leadership of Virginia Britting. 
When she came to Simmons as a freshman, the class with rare good judgment, charmed 
by her straightforwardness and modesty in popularity, elected her to Student Govern- 
ment Council. 

When she left us, she was holding the most responsible office that the College has 
to offer, President of Student Government, and she assumed the responsibility of this 
office with a grace and dignity that was unsurpassed. She had the gift of leadership 
and the class took her advice, undertook unpleasant tasks for her, and accepted its 
punishment from her, willingly; not only because of a consummate tact in her, but 
because it placed infinite faith in her sincerity and kindness. 

Loyal to everything that could ask loyalty of her; conscientious within the 
bounds of common sense; Simmons and 1918 are proud to point her out as one of theirs.

Lysla Isabel Abbott 

The land of the Golden West must indeed he the land of great promise, 
for from there hails our great fortune teller, Lysla; but actually this is 
the least of her abilities. As a librarian she's the last word; her contri- 
butions to the News are inimitable; she possesses the fine art of conver- 
sation; she loathes raisins, and the sincerity of her hero-worship is un- 
paralleled. There is only one Lilly — ours!

Dot really does get enough sleep at night, but the minute she sees the 
College building she begins to yawn. Whether her mouth is open or 
closed, however, doesn't affect her short and type any — she never misses 
a word in shorthand and transcribes just as accurately. When you work, 
Dot, — we think that you had better tell your employer that yawning is 
a habit and doesn't necessarily mean that you have been out late the 
night before.

Albertine Armstrong 

If all people from the wilds of Michigan are like Al Armstrong — lead 
us to them! When Al returns to the home state and holds a position as 
secretary to the Dean of Ann Arbor or some such person (as is her ambi- 
tion) the Dean can expect everything that is characteristic of a Simmons 
secretarial student — she can type, get her shorthand, and has figured 
out the workings of the machines in office org. to a considerable degree. 
To really appreciate her, however, you ought to be around when she 
utters a subtle wise-crack. A good laugh is had by all.

for the blue and gold ribbon she is privileged to wear on special occa-

many friends. 

Ann came to Simmons with a two-fold purpose: to become a first-class 
librarian, and to "see Boston;" the latter purpose she has fulfilled just 
as thoroughly as the former, because she has become the official "ticket 
buyer" and explorer for Appleton House.

A picture without a frame! That just describes Mary. When in a pen-

is overshadowed by her quiet nature, and she reserves her real self for 
her most intimate friends. Fudge-making is Mary's most enjoyable art, 
one which has won for her the reputation of a sweet girl. Her career is 
centered in teaching, but some day, an artist might find her — his long 
lost "old-fashioned" ideal, and encase her in a frame.

Simmons proved that. She made a profit of thousands of dollars. Ruth is 
very versatile. Who can tell what she will accomplish next! She excels 
in English as well as in Accounts. She has been the faithful leader of 
"the gang" that vanishes every 5th hour, for the past three years.

A tiny children's librarian is a dangerous thing, but handv, because 
the children won't have such fear of a scolding for too much noise from 
one about their own size. Gin isn't going to have to scold much, how- 
ever; she learned at Simmons how to conduct a model children's library. 
The danger is, she might be mistaken for one of the children in a rush

Always ready with a cheerful grin in passing and a helpful boost for 
anything that our class is doing where class spirit and enthusiasm are 
required — that's Kay. 

Her thoughtful generosity is a double reason why she is one of the 
most beloved girls of our class. This trait is admirably in evidence dur- 
ing the lunch hour when she divides the results of her culinary endeavors 
unselfishly, and most accurately, among her friends. 

Even the trials and uncertainties of commuting have not in any way 
dampened Kay's spirits. Would that Campus had better known those 
spirits, Oh, Kay!

the undoing of things, and her Junior year was spent at the University

"Gee wuz!" — Who's that, no other than Mary Mead, better known 
by her playmates of the top floor as "Mamie." We'll always remember 
Mary as the little girl who liked to go home now and then and demon- 
strate her skill at making apple pie. We wonder who for!

Eleanor Louise Merrow 
"El" "Ellie" 

If you want to be amused, play bridge, conduct an intellectual argu- 
ment on politics or a career, or find a loyal friend, find Eleanor. These 
are a few of the things which make up that lovable and interesting 
character of Eleanor's. It is unknown to which of these she owes her week- 
ends at West Point and her Sunday "Specials," but it is known that she 
never lacks for entertainment.

Marion A. Miller 

Marion is the one stabilizing element in the lives of many of her 
friends. When they are wildly seeking assistance in any problem, from 
Physics to how to shorten the old evening gown, she is always on hand 
to help. She is the haven of refuge for all lonesome Freshmen — of four 
different vintages — and for many who were never lonesome. She is a 
delightful combination of dignity and naivete and a certain something 
which wins her the respect of every one.

Ina Christine Minto 

Like a finely cut, delicate cameo of an Old English Lady — perhaps one 
should say Scotch — is Pat. Incongruously, she graces Short, and Type, 
and does better than any one else. 

As for other courses, she seems to have the keenest intuition. She can 
follow instructor's thoughts and have an answer for every question or an 
intelligent suggestion.

Mary Allie Mize 

Only those who have been fortunate enough to be in classes with 
Mary, or be entertained in her home, know that behind that silent dig-

friend. "I'm from Missouri," is her favorite expression and, as soon as 
graduation is over, she promises to depart for that far-away home-land. 
She and her sleek, handsome cat, Peter, will certainly be missed from 
the Fenway.

Then, too, she has been known to serve as a very capable member of a com-

Elinor Louise Osmers 

What's that noise? Just a crowd having hysterics and yet some say 
Elinor is noisv. How can she help it, if everyone will scream when she 
merely tells how So-and-so acted when she did thus and so? She is '2.8's 
premiere comedienne, whether she is describing the last dance she has 
been to or the time she was "just this far from pro." She harnessed her 
humor long enough to do a couple "characters" for Dramatics, but even 
then the "original Oz" showed through. 

As cheer leader and Glee Club member we found she could sing better 
than most of us. If this talent is let loose in a tea room we're going to 
hold tight to the address 'cause it's sure to be the peppiest, most origi- 
nal, and modernist room ever concocted by Lunchroom Management II.

Pretty short curls all over her head, pep and vim galore and a giggle-

she soon fought her way through her nightmare of work and came out 
the same carefree, happy Betty we know now. And more than that, 
"Phone for Betty" — "Caller for Miss Otte" are very frequent phrases 
in West House.

Edith Verna Trask 
"Ede" "Eddie" 

When one sees a beautiful, sparkly diamond ring on the left hand, it 
isn't difficult to speculate as to the future of that person who owns the 
ring,, is it? We all remember that the ring came with the Junior Prom, 
and what could be more romantic? Evidently the gentleman concerned 
has an eye for business — or else he knows a good thing when he sees it, 
because Ede belongs to the Home Ec. School. "Nuf ced!"

Dorothy Ann Tuohey 

To keep the ball of conversation ever rolling appears to be one of 
Dot's aims in life. There are no awkward silences or dull moments 
where Dot is. She has the happy faculty of keeping everybody amused, 
pleased, and interested.

"Mary" for long; and "Mary" for short 

If you simply must unburden your heart to somebody, go to Mary. 
She is always equally ready to sympathize with you in times of woe and 
to rejoice with you when Fortune smiles. The little girl with the big 
heart — that's Mary.

Alice Virta 

''And her sunny locks, 
Hung on her tangles like a golden fleece. 

Al is one of the busiest girls in Simmons; there is no end to the number 
of things she does and they're of every nature imaginable. If you want 
to know when it is best to write a theme, ask Al and she will tell you 
that inspiration comes most readily in the small hours of the morning. 
Success is assured you, Al, if you don't continue to startle the Sec. 
Department by falling into waste baskets.

Beatrice Lillian Vogelius 

When some one asks you who the girl is in the Senior class who has 
wavy golden hair and blue eyes combined with a sweet disposition and 
a charm of personality, you will be able to answer at once, "Why, Bee 
Vogelius, of course." Gentlemen prefer blondes; and can you wonder 
at that with her for an example?

Katharine Vories 

It's 11:30 and the telephone rings. No one gets particularly excited 
(except Kay, perhaps) for everyone knows it's "the fellah". We really 
think we'd get to know this Colorado damsel lots better if she'd stop 
"Dodge-ing" around here and there of an evening, and stay home with 
her playmates for a change. But we just make the most of the few 
precious moments she spends in the dorms, and really find her quite the 
girl, — full of good western humor and always ready to get in on the fun. 
We regret to state, however, that she is addicted to ruining perfectly 
good fire drills with giggles caused by a certain gentleman's chicken 
and spaghetti.

Charlotte D. Wait 

Charlotte is laughing again. Some one has just told their pet story to 
this appreciative audience. She's sure to laugh at the right time, be- 
cause she's always at it. This hilarity is very contagious, so watch out, 
if you're trying to preserve Senior dignity. It can't be done within the 
"three mile limit."

Nellie Warren 

Nellie's bright, sparkling eyes, her neatness, her quiet laughter, all 
betoken a delightful personality. We've discovered many nice things 
about this girl of surprises and the nicest thing of all is we're not at all 
sure we know her yet.

tured many friends at Simmons. With Social Service keeping her occupied 
all day and a certain caller calling 'most every night she is by no means 
a lady of leisure.

Edna W. Weber 


If Edna has a beautiful, sleek riding horse at her disposal that is all 
that is necessary for a good time to her. In a round about way we have 
learned that "Next to herself she loves a horse best." Not only is she an 
excellent horsewoman; she is a young lady with a vast amount 
of previous experience in the business world, Yale University, 
The American Fruit Company, and the American Brass Company being 
some of the places where she has had an opportunity to apply her valu- 
able Simmons Secretarial training.

Ruth Florence Whelan 

"And so the busy Ruth improves each shining hour' 

We haven't seen much of Ruth for the last year and a half, so that 
when we occasionally meet her in the corridor, it's like a good old-time 
reunion. As Ruth is the only member of '2.8 who has devoted all her 
time to the study of Physics and the solving of its many problems, we 
admire her courage, and predict great things for her future.

'Whate ' er she did 1 

done with so much ease' 

A burst of laughter, and undoubtedly we can trace it to Marjorie's 
door. She has a pleasant, cheerful disposition, accepts life as it is and 
makes the best of it, and is always ready to give that encouraging word 
when we need it. The theatre and athletics have occupied much of her 
time too.

Ruth Elizabeth Witherbee 

Wherever there's something going on you can usually find Ruthie. 
She's always busy, always doing something, — whether it be hockey or 
dramatics, prom or Xmas dinner. People enjoy having her around, not 
only to help get things going, but also to refresh them with her good 
humor and fine charm. Ruthie is a satisfaction, not alone to her class- 
mates, but to her instructors as well, as may easily be seen by the marks 
they give her.

Elsie Moyer Wright 

When Elsie steps into the position that is waiting for her in her home 
city it won't be long before the company will benefit by the training 
Elsie has received at Simmons. To know how things should be done — 
and to do them right is Elsie's motto. Accounts and short and type 
don't seem to bother her much either. Such patience!! 

Bv the way — what is this we hear about the excitement which pre- 
vails on Saturday night — even your best friends don't have to tell us.

Lucile Esther Wright 
"Cile" "Sunny" 

Lucile is a perfect gentleman. Last spring she appeared at the Simmons 
Theatre (the Refectory) dressed up in an awful looking pair of pants and 
blue denim shirt; and completely fooled everybody by making love to 
a widow. She got the widow, too. 

She can also behave like a perfect lady, should occasion arise.

Mary Ruth is the most popular balladist at Simmons and next year 
her charming voice and dramatic ability are going to be missed a great 
deal. All her phone calls and dates, however, might mean that an office 
won't even have a chance to learn of her many capabilities. The young 
gentleman in the background is Tech's prize production so we hear.

or even Alaska. Whichever you choose sounds perfectly intriguing and 
we know you are capable of doing both.

Between the duties required by the Social Service School, social obli-

because she comes to breakfast occasionally. May Social Service benefit 
by your helping hand!

The Triye Toenij igz6 


Lois E. Piper 

An old man; he whose days of worth are done, 

Day after day sits silently, and still 

And watches listlessly the surging tides 

That quietly slip in — then out again 

Into the grayness of the sea, to splash 

In foamy whiteness 'gainst the cold, gray stones 

That guard the rocky cove from end to end. 

He watches, from his steps, the fishing docks 

Where fishermen their nets stretch out to dry, 

And stubby little dories bob and swing 

On ceaseless white fringed waves that lap the shore. 

Sometimes he walks along the pebbled beach 

And stops, to hear the tales that these men tell. 

He shakes his head and knows that he has known 

Rare sights that they shall never see, or know, 

The crowded wharves at Singapore, the heat 

Of tropic skies; the throngs of many races 

And the cry of many tongues. 

But now his happy useful days are gone 

And he may only sit, and dream, and watch 

The petty fishing smacks unload their catch. 

While out beyond the mirror-surfaced cove 

The great ships pass like sentinels at night, 

Or groups of stars against the blackness of the sea. 

He sighs, and dreams of that which might have been.

We are all members of the Student Government Association, and to this Association 
we owe a certain responsibility and spirit of cooperation. Since we are governing 
ourselves we should feel that we are responsible for the kind of rules enacted, the 
way they are obeyed, and for the morale of the College as a whole. We can cooperate 
by doing our share of the work as individuals, and by assisting our representatives 
whenever we are asked to do so. 

Student Government is a stepping stone for the future. It gives us all an equal 
opportunity to show good judgment, to exercise the power of self-government, and 
to prepare for our recently acquired privilege of taking part in the political affairs of 
the country. It is a stepping stone of which we are exceedingly proud, not just be- 
cause of the advantages it offers to the individual, but because of the wonderful 
spirit of loyalty and love it has created in the College.

'Dormitory Council 

Chairman Anna Batchelder 

Secretary Irma Gerber 

Dormitory Council consists of House Seniors and House Chairmen. These girls 
bring up suggestions and dormitory problems for discussion. If any decision or 
change is made in the rules it is taken to Student Government Council to be approved, 
and from there it is taken to Conference Committee for ratification before it becomes 
a rule. The meetings of Dormitory Council are held every other week. 

The Committee has succeeded thus far in keeping the rules general as adopted under 
the Simmons Code, and has made only very minor variations in interpretations. 
Because of the cooperation of the student body the Code has proved satisfactory.

All the recommendations of Student Government Council, Dormitory Council, and 
Judicial Board must be approved by Conference Committee before they go into effect. 
This Committee, composed of four faculty members and three students, weigh care- 
fully all the suggestions before passing them or sending them back to the committee 
for reconsideration. 

As this is the only place where the mature opinion of the faculty, which is of so 
much value to us in making our decisions, may be procured, this Committee is a very 
necessary one. Student Government appreciates the loyal cooperation which the 
faculty members have manifested in giving us this service.

Judicial Hoard 

Chairman Helene Burr '2.8 

Secretary Barbara Ives '19 

The Judicial Board, as its name implies, is the judiciary branch of Student Govern- 
ment. Its work consists of dealing with all cases in which there has been the breaking 
of a Student Government or Academic rule, passing its recommendations to Dis- 
ciplinary Committee of the Faculty, if the case is academic, or to Conference Com- 
mittee if the case is dormitory. They in turn act on the recommendation. The offender 
always appears before the Board at the time her case is brought up and is given a 
chance to defend herself. 

The Board is composed of nine members: the four class presidents, a Sophomore and 
a Junior representative of Student Government Council and the Chairman, a Senior 
representative who is elected by the student body. The President and Vice-President 
of Student Government are ex-officio members. Judicial Board does not exist solely 
for the purpose of enforcing rules; it aims to enlarge our concepts of responsibility so 
that we may be more worthy of the privilege of self-government.

At last, Academy, the honorary society of Simmons, seems to be realizing the hopes 
of its former members. No longer is it thought of as a society whose membership 
does not recompense for the effort expended. Realization has been awakened that a 
deep and real interest in the work at hand is sure to bring the coveted invitation. 
The result is that the society has become larger and more active without a lowering 
of its standards. 

One of the new policies this year has been the placing of information concerning 
Academy before the rest of the student body through the channels of the News, 
Revzeiv, Poster Committee, and Bulletin Board. The monthly closed meetings have 
aroused much interest due to the kind cooperation found among the faculty members 
in providing interesting meetings. As usual, the three open meetings were featured 
and outside speakers were obtained. 

This is the first year that undergraduate members have enjoyed a period of active 
membership. With this background, however, they should carry on the work next 
year which will prove that Academy serves the purpose in Simmons of fostering an 
interest in academic and cultural studies.

The new Y. W. C. A. pledge which has been used in the membership campaign this 
year fitly expresses the aim of the organization — "To realize full' and creative life 
through a growing understanding of God." But God or the Purpose behind the 
universe is best understood through a continually broadening sympathy for others 
and a greater understanding of their problems. College life does a great deal toward 
cultivating a vital interest in all that goes on around us. The Y. W. C. A. hopes to 
further this educative process by making possible new and broader social contacts, 
thereby giving a new insight into life and a greater understanding of God. 

Speakers such as Dr. Kirtley Mather of Harvard, Dr. Lovett of Mt. Vernon Church, and 
Alice Brown of the National Board of the Y. W. C. A., have given an impetus to our 
thinking; the conferences at Maqua, Poland Springs, and Detroit opened up to many 
the possible richness of life and the greatness of our own resources. The all-college 
teas every week at the Metropolitan Headquarters at 500 Boylston Street, composed 
of students from all the big Boston colleges, afforded chances for more than superficial 

There is another part of the pledge that is indispensable to the Y. W. C. A. which 
is the reason for its being. "In this task (of living) we seek to understand Jesus and to 
follow Him." Bible and discussion groups have helped us to know more about the 
life of Jesus. Social service, club work, friendships with girls less fortunate than we, 
boxes at Christmas time for the poor, house parties at Woburn, parties at Dr. Holt's, 
and the faculty baseball game are just a few of the things that make Y. W. C. A. such 
fun as well as so worthwhile. 




Ellen Tfychards Club 

President Hilda May Holton 

Secretary-Treasurer Ruth F. Whelan 

The Ellen Richards Club was founded in 192.0 to stimulate an interest in science 
and to promote good-fellowship. Its membership includes Juniors and Seniors in the 
School of General Science and Seniors from the other schools who are majoring in 
biology, chemistry, or physics. Members of the faculty in the Science Department 
are included as honorary members, several of them having been active members 
during their student days at Simmons. 

In addition to the annual picnic in the fall and the "birthday party" in the spring, 
several open meetings are held at which addresses are given by outstanding figures 
in the scientific world. This year, closer cooperation has been made with the Home 
Economics Club, which has a common interest in Ellen Richards, whose name the 
club has taken. 

Although the admission requirements make the organization small, it is steadily 
growing. We hope that it will continue to do so, and that it will keep that spirit of 
comradeship which has distinguished it so far.

The Unitarian Club is the nucleus of a future organization. This group is reaching 
out for all liberal thought, and welcomes both girls and faculty to the open meetings 
held in North Hall. There is usually a speaker at these gatherings, such as Miles 
Hanson, Jr., who is well known in Boston. It is not uncommon to see either Mrs. 
Payne or Miss Goodrich behind the tea pot on such occasions. 

Simmons' night at the Town and Gown Club was acclaimed a great success, 
especially in the line of elimination dances. The Deerfield Conference is another 
activity of the Young People's Religious Union in which Simmons Unitarians have 

It is the purpose of the Club to bring all the Religious Liberals at Simmons to- 
gether for mutual friendship and the exchange of ideas. 




R. Vogel 

Christian Science Society 

Reader Ruth M. Vogel 

Chairman . . Jean L. Warren 

This Society is an organization which gives to those so desiring an opportunity to 
learn the truth about Christian Science. Testimonial meetings are held on each 
Thursday of the college year to which the students and faculty are welcome. This 
organization has shown much progress in the past year and is appreciated by the 
students who are Christian Scientists. 

The purpose of the Society is to bring about a greater realization of the friendship 
and cooperation among the Christian Scientists of the College and to increase the 
love of friendship for all the members in the College.

The Newman Club, of which all Catholics in College are automatically members, 
is one of the largest and most active clubs in Simmons. It is a member of the National 
Federation of College Catholic Clubs and thus affiliated with all the New England 
College Clubs and those throughout the United States. 

The Newman dance, bridge, open meetings and teas are now practically institutions 
in College that are looked forward to and enjoyed by all. 

The purpose of the Club is to bring together the Catholics of Simmons in religious, 
educational, and social activities. To this end the Club invites prominent and in- 
teresting speakers. The meetings are held the third Thursday of every month, to 
which a speaker or the Chaplain is usually invited. This year the Club members have 
been most active and helpful in aiding the officers to attain high standards and ideals 
worthy of their noble patron, Cardinal Newman.

The Menorah Society is affiliated with the Intercollegiate Menorah Association, 
which includes many of the larger colleges and universities throughout the country. 
The purpose of Menorah is the study and advancement of Hebrew ideas and culture, 
to stimulate a deeper and keener interest in things Jewish, through study circles and 
lectures. We also aim to develop closer friendship and loyalty among our members. 

The true initiates will find themselves in contact with all the romance and poign- 
ancy of Jewish tradition, with all the inspiring activity of modern Jewish life, a 
study of which will afford an adequate basis for future participation. 

Our symbol is the Menorah candlestick — a symbol of perpetual light — standing for 
the past glories, the undying spirit through defeat, and the renaissance of Jewish 
culture. It is earnestly hoped that the future members will be worthy upholders of 
this symbol of light and try always to keep the Menorah ideals lofty.

The Simmons College Review is just what the name implies: a survey of the college. 
It strives to achieve this purpose by its staff, composed of alumnae and undergraduate 
editors, its annual poetry contest, and its policy of publishing articles by the faculty, 
and alumnae, as well as the undergraduates. 

This year, in order to add to its attractiveness, The Review has increased the number 
of its illustrations.

The Simmons TS[ews 

The News, with an eye to furthet development, and a paper more truly representative 
of the needs of the student body, lengthened its printed matter this year and in- 
augurated a policy which attempts to conform more strictly to that of a professional 
newspaper. In addition it is now running an exchange with practically all the other 
large colleges in the East. 

The News desires most particularly to add to its staff under-classmen who have 
recently come from other school paper staffs, for their seasoned experience, and new 
recruits, who are interested in work, for their enthusiasm. In all ways The News hopes 
to continue to be vitally alive to the college. A newspaper is perhaps the most worth- 
while of all undergraduate endeavors to be sophisticated. 

Because of the size of the College, Simmons should be able to support a large 
newssheet, and have it filled with material which pertains entirely to school affairs. 
The staff suggests that next year, if it has the backing of the student body, The News 
will make its bow in a larger and broader edition.

Now that Mk is actually before you, the thing for the Staff to do is to take a 
running jump into the Charles. If any member is unable to swim, so much the better. 
Before we go, however, we wish to make known the causes of our suicide, which are 
as follows: 

"I forgot all about having my picture taken Saturday." 

"When are the statistics to be in? I've lost mine." 

"How is Mk coming along?" 

"Could you add this to my activities?" 

"I can't find any pictures taken Sophomore year." 

"How is Mk coming along?" 

"I forgot again to have my picture taken." 

"Is it too late to have this added to my statistics?" 

"These jokes are too old." 

"How is Mk coming along?" 

"I can't write anything." 

"I don't know her at all. I know her too well." 

"By the way, how is Mic coming along?" 

"When does Mk go to press?" 

"I'm sorry this is so late, etc." 

Yes, Microcosm means "little world" — little world of work, little world of worry, 
little world of college life, little world of laughs ten years hence — we hope! Choose 
whichever world you like, we'll never know. Before we take the fatal plunge, how- 
ever, we wish to thank those who gave us their untiring cooperation. 

"We thank you."

In the early days of "female colleges," Mr. Ryan, Editor of the Boslon Herald, tells 
us that newspapers looked upon the college woman as a sort of disembodied person, 
whose activities, highly intellectual in nature, could be of no interest to the reading 
public. With the introduction of athletics and the consequent pictures, however, 
student activities came to be regarded as news, and since that time college news has 
had an assured place in newspapers. 

In order to satisfy the demands of the papers and yet give only the finest type of 
news, college press boards were formed in all the women's colleges, and today occupy 
an increasingly important place among student organizations. 

This year the Simmons Press Board, consisting of the reporters for the Boston 
papers, has attempted to organize a sub-Press Board which will contribute news 
items to home town papers. While the smaller papers offer little remuneration the 
experience prepares the reporters for a place on the regular Press Board and helps to 
extend Simmons publicity. 

The clipping service, financed by Student Government, collects news items from 
papers all over the United States, and on the Press Bulletin Board will be found news 
of students, faculty and alumnae. Like every other organization, we are looking 
forward to the "Utopian" days of the new wing, when we shall have a little space 
to call our own, where we may keep our typewriters and equipment. 



Student Forum 

Chairman, Dorothy Lawrence 

Forum, according to Webster, means "a public gathering." Each time a 
Forum has been scheduled we have wondered if it might prove to be a 
private gathering of an exclusive few. But somehow Forum has held its own 
against the competition of the many social and business interests which 
call us all. 

This year we discovered Mr. Beals of the Post, who visited all our dorms 
and gave us news of all the plays and players we ever heard of or never heard 
of before. Madame Tamanoff too was generous and visited us all, winning 
our hearts as usual. Dr. Varrell gave us in an hour the current events we had 
all lost track of during the summer. Miss Babcock and Dr. Gay read and dis- 
cussed poetry with the Freshmen and Sophomores. Clayton Hamilton 
reproached us women for the falling standards of the theatre, in a delightful 
talk. We resolved to support all the good plays and only the good ones. 

Dr. Harley provided a most exciting evening with a talk on "Companion- 
ate Marriage." The discussion waxed hot and continued in many groups all 
over the College for some time after. 

Miss Gertrude Ely and Vincent Burns touched on the Political and Eco- 
nomic fields. Miss Ely's enthusiastic talk made us all feel we should be 
satisfied with nothing less than the Presidential office in our political 

The most gratifying result of the year's efforts has been the response of 
the girls themselves in questioning and discussing the subjects brought up. 
It is still to be regretted, however, that all the girls do not appreciate the 
value of Forum, and it does not have the hundred per cent, support it deserves.

Treasurer Frances Zink, '2.9 

The Home Economics Club aims to acquaint the undergraduates in college with 
the various vocations open to home-economics-trained women. This aim is accomp- 
lished by affiliation with the Massachusetts, New England and American Home 
Economics Associations; by monthly meetings at which speakers tell about their 
work in various fields and answer questions; and by sending a member of the Junior 
class as delegate to the annual National Home Economics Convention. This was a 
new project last year and we plan to carry it on in the future. 

The Club is financed by the club members, who conduct food sales in the dormi- 
tories and at Hall Table; also by a subscription dance given in the fall term. In addi- 
tion to sending a delegate to the National Convention this also enables us to carry 
membership in the National Association, and contribute to the Ellen Richards Fund. 

The Club year was concluded with a tea given in honor of Miss Marjorie Heseltine, 
a Simmons graduate, who is a great friend of the Club.

Chairman of Committees .... Katherine Goodman, '2.8 

The Dramatic Club has every reason to feel that its year was successful and that its 
members show talent which should enable them to attempt almost any play, no 
matter how difficult. 

This year as the big production, the Club chose "Pygmalion," an extremely 
amusing play by Bernard Shaw, which taxed the ingenuity and capabilities of every 
member of the board from actor to stage hand. To help them, however, in the under- 
taking, Mrs. Neitsche of Leland Powers School was asked to coach and a great deal 
of the credit for the successful acting is largely due to her. Dorothy Lawrence and 
Janet Cohn, both of whom it will be remembered starred in last year's play, were 
again well placed in the leads of "Pygmalion." 

In February, as always, the three competitive one-act plays were presented, each 
play being coached by a Senior. This year the blue ribbon went to the Juniors, which 
was won under Lysla Abbott's splendid direction.

The Musical Association consists of the Glee Club and the Instrumental Club. The 
latter met for rehearsals this year until January 6, the date of the concert with M. I. T. 
Both the Instrumental Club and the Glee Club of one hundred fifty members took 
part in this concert, which was very well received. The chief event of the year was 
the Jordan Hall concert held April 2.9. The programme was a credit to the Glee Club 
and was well executed. 

It is to Mr. David Blair McCloskey, the director, that the success of the Glee Club 
is largely due. We hope that the Glee Club will improve in the future and some day 
be known all over the country.

Although all athletics at Simmons are still limited to inter-class competition, they 
are steadily increasing in popularity and occupy an important niche among extra- 
curricular activities. Hockey, tennis, basketball, swimming, riding, fencing, and 
archery are our organized sports, and the interest in basketball has increased so 
noticeably in the past few years that second team games have been organized and are 
now played on the same basis and with as much enthusiasm as are the first team 

An actual proof of the ever-increasing interest in athletics is the presence of the 
many badges and cups of achievement. Last year S. A. A. adopted for the first time a 
blazer, with the seal of the Association, which it presents to girls with outstanding 
athletic ability. At present only two girls in College own such blazers, but many are 
striving for them. The reward of a blazer is worth trying for, don't vou think?

Two courses in Senior Life Saving, one in the fall term, and one in the winter term, 
are offered at Simmons, under the leadership of Captain Jack Wallace, of the Boston 
Metropolitan Chapter of the American Red Cross. The course includes instructions 
and practice in the procedure which should be followed from the time a person is 
found in danger in the water until he has completely recovered, or until rigor mortis 
has set in, — a thing which we hate to have happen, but which is sometimes inevitable. 

A more advanced course is offered in the spring for Senior Life Savers who wish to 
become examiners. Many girls take this course if they wish to teach Life Saving at a 
summer camp. 




Freshman Frolic 

Tie on your spanking big stiff hair ribbon, little girl. Turn your dress up above 
your knees, and roll your socks so that the frilly garters show. 

And you, little boy, tuck in the straggling locks of hair under your swagger cap, 
squeeze into cousin Tommy's short, tight pants, and tie under your collar your 
biggest, brightest bow. 

Today is your day! Your last day to run and jump, and pull hair, and have races, 
and dance around the hurdy-gurdy, and eat all-day suckers down to the very last 
suck. Up! Up! all you children. The circus has come to Simmons Town. There are 
bareback riders, and bears, and a wild woman, and a human skeleton, and host of 
other things. 

How you rallied to that last happy romp, you Freshmen of '2.8! And now that you 
are care-ridden, dignified Seniors don't you dare have the grace to blush at the 
terrible, awful, wonderful things you allowed yourself to do on that day of days at 
Freshman Frolic. You'll chuckle instead, because you still have deep in your hearts 
the happy spirit of childhood.

Track T)ay 

"Class of 192.8 Wins Track Day." Thus read the headline in the News the Thursday 
after that memorable day, when we as mere children carried off the honors. We 
deserved them, however, because running around all wrapped up in a sheet with a 
mask on that just wouldn't co-ordinate with our own eyes, was enough to make 
any dog growl — especially a "hot dog." Do you remember the weather on that 
great day? But what difference did the weather make — our costumes won the prize. 

Members both past and present came forth in true. Olympian style, so we carried 
off the athletic honors too. Every one jumped, threw baseballs and basketballs, shot 
put and javelins or anything else that came into sight, so well and far that the judges, 
doubtless in self-defense, acclaimed them winners. 

After winning everything we could, we returned home- 

-tired, but happy. Do you 





Qhost Walk Impressionarios 

A thin white line of sheeted ghosts led by a valiant spectre, scurrying along 
narrow sidewalks, dodging behind houses, emerging somewhere amid 
jungled paths of the Fenway. 

Second: A vacant field. A tug of war. Ghosts at either end of the rope pulling. Snap! 
Dr. Mark tying knots. More pulling. More snaps. Ghastly bodies piled in 
heaps at either end of the rope. 

Third: Disarranged and grass-stained, but cheerful, ghosts wending a snaky way 
through corridors and basements. Interested staring Seniors. Husky voices 
shouting the endless dirge: 

"The Sophomore ghost 
Can surely boast 
He's showed them all 
He could pull the most." 

Fourth: Cider and doughnuts, of which an unghostly amount was consumed. 



Sophomore Luncheon 

Bowls of yellow daffodils 
And tables gleaming white. 
Waitresses in costumes dainty 
Served food that seemed just right. 

Rings we had been hoping for 
Proved worth the long, long wait. 
Toasts and speeches all were fine 
On that eventful date. 

Anne and Gin presided then 
Our bulldog at their side 
When Mr. Johnny Simmons took 
Miss Vingt-Huit for his bride. 

Songs and cheers we sang that day, 
Original and clever. 
We felt the spirit of our class 
And we'll forget it never. 




Sophomore zMay T)ay 

Sophomore May Days come and Sophomore May Days go — but we will always 
remember ours because of course it seemed like the nicest one ever, to us. 

King Gin and Queen Nettie looked "extra special" distinguished, and they re- 
acted with true royal spirit to the splendid presentation of "Winters' Tale" and the 
May Pole Dance. Were fairies ever more graceful than on that chill, dewey morn? 

After the entertainment, the King and Queen descended from their thrones to par- 
take of that truly regal fare — Strawberry Shortcake. There on campus, was a "vast 
mingling" of royalty, traveling performers, and many spectators — a pleasant memory 
of Twenty-Eight's first May Day.

The Weddings of '28 


The wedding march had started, 
The wedding guests were still 

As the sound of lovely music 
Set every heart a-thrill ! 

The bride was a lovely vision, 
The groom was handsome, too. 

The bridesmaids formed a picture, 
As they entered two by two. 

The words were spoken softly, 
Then — it pleaseth to relate — 

Twenty-Six gazed proudly 

On his blushing Twenty-Eight. 


Another wedding soon took place, 
Distinguished as the other, 

When Nineteen-Thirty was the bride 
Of Twenty-Eight's young brother. 

Some famous guests invited, came 

In all their royal splendor. 
The bride was sweet, and the comely groom 

Was worthy to defend her. 

'Twas over soon, their vows were pledged, 

And thanks to kindly Fate, 
That led sweet Nineteen-Thirty 

To the arms of Twenty-Eight. 





Freshman-Junior Ticnic 

One day in May, as Juniors, we took a vacation from Prom shopping and started 
for Nantasket with our Freshmen. More people were early than late at Rowe's 
Wharf, as you can imagine, and the boat couldn't start soon enough for us. 

With Nantasket Beach to ourselves, Twenty-Eight and Thirty made it a lively 
place. Those big boxes that the Freshmen carried were full of yummy, yummy food, 
"we foun' that out." This plus innumerable rounds of tonics, hot-dogs, and ice 
cream cones kept up the picnic spirit for too short a time. 

Did some one say wading? Some of the more venturesome even went shrieking 
into the ocean for the first swim of the season. There was also a freighter obligingly 
beached to furnish grounds for exploring. We were a bedraggled looking bunch 
when we boarded the boat for Boston, but we unanimously voted Ninteen Thirty 
the best picnic hostesses in captivity. 


19 2 8 


At last the day had come for which 

We all had hoped and planned, 

Our Junior Prom — before had seemed 

A dream, but now will stand 

Forever in our memories 

As a time of keen delight; 

What pictures to our minds it brings 

Of colors gleaming bright, 

Of music softly sounding, 

Of laughter echoing near, 

And then the Senior's Serenade — 

We'll always hold that dear. 

Too soon the dance was over 

Inevitably as Fate. 

But we will count with happy hours 

The Prom of Twenty-Eight. 



Senior Housewarming 

It was the night of Senior Housewarming — in October of 1917. Now a contest 
was on for hoboes. Would you believe it, great were the variations appearing showing 
that some are born hoboes, others acquire it, and still others may have it forced upon 
them. Men, women, and children came. It was a free-for-all — for all Senior hoboes. 
In due time came the hour of 8:co P.M., mid much flying around of the committee 
(yes they did) and of the prospective hoboes. 

Silence! One at a time they came in. Result — yowls, yells, and screams! What did 
happen in the darkness of the night? Then just a little story about that dead body 
in the Simmons Dump (thrown out by some Anatomy course, no doubt). It was an 
organ recital. Some laughed, some roared, others fainted and a few almost died. 

Home talent was there in abundance. Each hoboe strived for first place in every- 
thing. All were initiated into the order of Skinnay Horses, which had their first and 
last appearance on that night. It was a rare treat. More treats followed as had been 
previously prophesied by the publicity committee. 

The hold-up crowd staged one. It was so unexpected. Poor little Izzy was the 
victim. Her jewels, gold fillings, gold fish, gold tipped cigarettes — all were taken. 
A reward is offered for their recovery. 

Then — the food! There was everything any hoboe could have desired and much 
better than he would have secured out on the road. Liquid, semi-soft, and solid 
nourishment was provided. Every one had from two to four helpings. When all were 
well fed and sleepy it was time to do something else — go home, of course. 

And the like of such will never be seen again!

Ye Christmas "Dinner 

"We bid you welcome one and all 

To this our gay manorial hall." 

Thus spoke our Lord of revellers; 

Then singing came the carolers. 

The guests took their places in some surprise 

For what! Were they to eat with their knives? 

But ah, when the great boar's head was brought in 

The knives began with clatter and din! 

Next came the plum pudding sparkling with fire, 

The very height of our cherished desire! 

(The pages and jesters our time did employ 

So that no one had chance for ought but joy.) 

A knock and a shout at the entrance door 

And some strolling players were brought to the fore. 

Then they with St. George and the dragon did play 

In a most fantastic and comical way. 

The food was all eaten, the candles burned low — 

The last song began — how sad we must go! 



Student (government Tarty, 1927 

There is something sad about the Colonnade. It stands year after year; listens to 
the farewell songs of class after class, and mourns through its weeping wisteria 
blossoms swaying in the breeze. 

The thought of separation is sad, and that is what the Colonnade brings home to 
us. When, on the last day of school in 192.7, we all gathered together for the last time 
with that class, it was with a little feeling of stillness that we gazed on our departing 
Seniors, wishing that this Student Government Party 'would last a long time, so as 
to keep them with us that much longer. But it was not to be. The time flew. After 
the Seniors had turned over the reins of government to 1918, with the subsequent 
responsibilities of being a Senior class, with standards to uphold, and problems to 
be solved, the careless, free and easy life of an undergraduate was lost in the dim 

After the delicious supper of the traditional lobster salad, and the animated dis- 
cussion of different groups, of who was who and what about it, came the last step 
sing for the Seniors with the College, as a whole. Every one felt the solemnity of 
the occasion for the Seniors and sang with their very best voices. What if one's 
voice did break a little; it seemed the wisteria, dripping lavender tears on the hard 
mortarboards of the Seniors, sympathized, and it too joined in the singing of the 
farewell song. 

At last, we were Seniors! 



The Tri^e Toenij igij 

The "Designer 

Margaret E. Kimball 

One day, grown bored with thrones and kingdoms — 

For even He must weary of staid things — 

God laid aside His sceptre and His crown 

And picking up the shears He laughed and said, 

"I'll try My hand at wielding these instead." 

And so from folds of rich green velvet 

He made the Adirondacks, 

And over their soft-plaited folds 

Let fall a film of violet chiffon 

Shading to royal purple at the edge. 

Then with head tip-tilted He surveyed His handiwork. 

Shrugged his imperial shoulders and with impatient hand 

Tore off the changing veil and in its place 

Tried billowy folds of silver-white, bouffant effect, 

Then finger to lip, regarded it with frowning gaze. 

Once more He stripped it off, and this time 

O'er the velvet base cast clouds of sombre blue 

Caught with long pins of silv'ry rain. 

This done, He smiled and nodded, satisfied — 

"How's that, Lanvin?" said God.

To zMrs. Jack 

She built a shrine for beauty and she brought 

From far off lands her treasures old and rare. 

Each strain of color harmony she sought 

To fit into its place with loving care. 

This bit of turquoise crystal glass she'd place 

Beneath a quaint and lovely portrait, where 

The mantle, drawn to hide milady's face, 

Reflects the same soft shade of blue seen there. 

She did not want to catalogue and date. 

She'd no desire to study curve and line 

Or any School of Art, but to create 

And give to those who'd understand, a Shrine. 

Now through her rooms the stupid people go, 

And say, "There really isn't any PLAN, you know." 

L. E. Piper.

Magnus Quint 

(President of the Society of Climatic Research') 

The Malthusian and Mendelian laws 
are now generally accepted but the im- 
portant effect of climate is usually 
underemphasized. We live in the age 
of steel, of big business, of prosperity — 
an age made possible only by the peculiar 
environmental conditions of the early 
twentieth century. Through its folk 
songs its fascinating history is preserved 
to us. 

The climate was one of continual rain. 
By developing a defense mechanism, 
these cheerful people were not damped 
by the atmosphere but evolved one of 
the brightest folk songs in our literature : 
"Let a smile be your umbrella." De- 

parting from the purely defensive, being 
quite practical, they grew discontented 
with the pretty but rather ineffectual 
smile, and so T. Edison devised the 
"umbrella." Somewhat flexible ribs are 
an indispensable part of this weapon, so 
the astute Thomas learned to make 
them of steel which he invented for the 
purpose. Thus auspiciously was born a 
new and beautiful thing, modern civiliza- 

New folk songs of rejoicing were 
written ; courageous people who formerly 
asked, "How in the world can the old 
folks tell that it ain't gonna rain no 
more?" answered themselves quite logi- 
cally, "Let it rain, let it pour, there 
ain't no rain where I'm headin' for." 

Science is now convinced that climate 
is the reason for our superiority — a 
superiority not only mechanical but 
spiritual. Directly the use of steel 
became common, a less carefree but 
more philosophic strain entered the 
lyrics: "Rain, pitter patter on the pane," 
for example, in which the alliteration, 
alone suffices to give distinction. 
Nothing, however, transcends the simple, 
dignified, almost superhumanly beauti- 
ful philosophy of: "We'll watch the rain, 
together." Science, art, and industry, 
then, vary directly with the climate and 
inversely with an element still to be

Ah! Life-

In 1927 Anna Driver and Underwood 
Portable were married and people in 
their set sat up until after three in the 
morning talking about them. Anna 
was ambitious enough to take the Secre- 
tarial Course at Simmons College over 
her practical-minded relatives' argumen- 
tation. Her incentive had been the 
Palmer certificate she had won in High 
School for her beautiful penmanship. 

Portable was getting toward middle 
age when Anna came to college but she 
insisted on bringing him — her own suave, 
determined manner and Portable's dig- 
nified verbosity soon quieted the tongues 
of the campus gossips. 

A-suite, at the east end of South Hall, 
was brightened by the morning sun. 
The sun warmed old Portable and made 
his keys gleam like silver as Anna came 
in from breakfast. "Work again," 
opened her lips, and her hands began 
to work in their accustomed orbits: 
asdfg ;lkjh asdfg ;lkjh — throughout the 
day they went on, doing his work, 
pounding, pounding, pounding. He 
made a perfect impression, a symbol of 
the work of her hands: "asdfg;lkjh," 

and "Dear Sir, your order just received," 
and "The economic significance of the 
rise in the price of hides is — " — all the 
record of her service, her life, her hands. 
Her living hands pounded on noisily; 
they flung themselves ceilingward at 
nine o'clock; they helped him to his 
corner, and closed his case, 
A girl listened for the sound of the 
buzzer. The day belonged to Portable 
but the nights were hers! Escape! 
The buzzer sounded. The maid's voice, 
"A car to see you." She put her hand 
behind her head to secure more firmly 
an imaginary knot of hair, and walked 
down the stairs. 


Upstairs some one else had awaited the 
noise of the buzzer. He stayed stolidly 
motionless but he was thinking, think- 
ing with bitterness at his heart — What 
does she care about the economic signifi- 
cance of the rise in the price of hides? 
A damp breeze coming in the window 
made the printed sheaf — the work of her 
hands — shiver. He did not restrain it. 
The wind drew it out of doors. It be- 
came dissipated in the rain. Asdfgjlkjh. 

"Royal Corona! What a status."

No. 5 




Miss Diall said she was 
much pleased at the inter- 
est heretofore shown in 
ping-pong and horse-back 
riding this year. Even 
though these are expensive 
sports, still anyone can 
participate, and as Miss 
Diall said participation is 
very good for our lungs 
and physique. 

At the close of the lec- 
ture Miss Diall read a very 
regrettable announcement 
that the Prince of Wales 
had been cast from his 
horse again. As an hon- 
orary member of the Sim- 
mons Associates, however, 
he has sent over to us the 
horse, his regrets, and a 
philosophical and encour- 
aging letter urging that 
practice makes perfect. 

All present voted it a 
very interesting meeting. 


At an enthusiastic and 
well attended Academy 
meeting week before last, 
Mr. J. J. Jones of the 
Forsyth Dental Infirmary 
spoke on "Electricity in 
Electrons," a very instruc- 
tive subject. He said that 
though many people 
seemed to know that there 
are electrons in electricity, 
horrifyingly few, even of 
educated people, realize 
that there is also electric- 
ity in electrons. 

A delightful sense of 
humor punctuated his talk. 




Urges Complete Free- 
dom of College Minds 

That absolute freedom 
must be granted to the 
college mind if it is to 
accomplish anything is the 
contention of one of the 
reporters on the "New 
Student," reporting in that 
sheet. "This is not pos- 
sible with the present, in 
many colleges, unfair sys- 
tem of examinations. 
That an apparently sane 
college President, one in a 
position of the greatest 
responsibility, should ac- 
tually curb the freedom of 
the college mind in the 
strait-jacket of examina- 
tions, is a crime against 
the Younger Generation. 

We are too much ruled 
by our elders. How can 
we form good judgment if 
we are consistently re- 
fused the chance to form 
good judgment? 

The Older Generation 
is afraid of us." 

The inspiring speech was 
heartily applauded by the 
Club of College Presidents 
before whom it was de-

Senator Johnson says 
there is no such thing as a 
Prohibition issue. He 
also said last week that 
there is no Coolidge issue. 
If the ice-man forgets to 
leave the ice on July 3, 
there is no issue, there 
simply isn't any ice. Prob- 
ably the lettuce will be 
just as limp after July 4, 
as the Senator is likely to 
be after next November 
election day. 

The Senator from In- 
diana, however, injected 
a note of rationalism into 
the discussion at this 
point, inquiring why, if 
Senator Johnson wished 
to talk about Prohibition, 
he didn't talk to a Prohi- 
bition agent. Mr. John- 
son requested the gentle- 
man from Indiana to re- 
sume his seat. 

Cal is a deep fellow and 
not even his wife knows 
why he is so wonderful, 
but even he doesn't know 
whether there is a Pro- 
hibition issue.

If the World spent more time in thought, it would 
be a much happier and more useful world. Thought 
is conducive to happiness not only because it is 
considered to be a highly superior activity, setting 
one apart from the more mundane of human beings, 
but also because in exercising it, one finds many 
unsuspected truths which add to one's happiness. 

Thought is useful in that it often leads to splendid 
new ideas for the conduct of affairs. We Americans 
do love to conduct affairs!! It is our strength in 

Particularly happy and useful is thought in a 
Microsom ("little world") like our own. If we had 
more of it, we would be better off. 


No one loves the mushroom atop Simmons. It is 
truly too bad for its soft green colors and perfect 
symmetry blending nicely with the trees and sky 
make it an object of art not to be compared with 
anything in Mrs. Jack Gardiner's palace. The 
trouble is, however, that many people seem to feel 
that everything about Simmons is worse than it is 
anywhere else. The grass is always greener in the 
other fellow's yard, but we are actually another 
fellow's yard. 


Dear Editor, 

I am outraged and dis- 
gusted. I wish to make 
known thru the columns of 
your good paper the scan- 
dalous state of affairs in 
one of the college dormi- 
tories. The students (?) in 
one of the houses have for a 
long time been disgracing 
the good name of the col- 
lege, until I can no longer 
contain myself.

beautiful and lasting friend-

Friendship is something 
which many people have 
described — which I have 
felt. It has ennobled me 
and made me happy once 
in a while. I find such 
little cause for rejoicing in 
this sad world. 

I have sought friendship, 
and it has sought me.
